Baker1000 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

This is great! I wonder if it's availability on NX could hint that the console IS a combination of handheld/home console. I'm not sure if I'll buy on 3DS or NX yet...depends if they have a nice StreetPass feature on it like that which was featured on DQ9 (pre-StreetPass).

Eh, I'm not bothered about DQX now...I doubt it will make it over here, plus I'd rather play a straight RPG than an MMO.



Baker1000 commented on Awesome New Nendoroids are Unveiled at Wonder ...:

Well there goes my cash. They could do so much with Kirby though. The many, many hats he wears for copy abilities...they could even go as far as selling extra parts separately, there's too many to include in the box!

That Link though. 😍



Baker1000 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd July (Europe):

Can't really see the point in Yoshi Touch & Go getting a new release. It was only ever a glorified tech demo, for when people needed convincing to invest in a DS and see the potential for dual screen, touch screen gaming.

You would have thought the guy would make sure to take his beloved games, if what she says is true.

Could be a case where the guy was kicked out of the house and not allowed all of his possessions back. This has happened to my sister twice in two separate break-ups, one of which was a marriage. If that is the case, it shows what a childish pathetic person she is.

"Looks like a Super Nintendo controller but not really sure, haven't played one in forever"

Dude, it's one of the most iconic controllers of all time!

Why did he wait so long after finding it, is what I'd like to know? Perhaps he never realised it's rarity, I guess. Anyway, cool find, I hope it goes to a good home or a museum.



Baker1000 commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

I've always thought one of the biggest obstacles the Wii U had to overcome from the start is people not actually knowing it's a new games console. Many of the casual gamers that picked up a Wii, the sort who don't follow gaming that closely (except maybe when the next FIFA or CoD is out) simply didn't know that Nintendo had a new console out. I spoke to people of that kind right after it was out, when it was being shown on TV, and they thought it was just a new controller to use with the Wii. A bit like Sony bringing out a Dual Shock with a big screen in the middle...or what actually happened, them bringing out the PS Move controllers. Many of the people who made the Wii a success, didn't get the memo that said there's a new console to invest your money in.



Baker1000 commented on Nintendo Says That Star Fox Zero's Gyro Contro...:

This is good news. Gyro controls can be fun, but require recalibrating far too often to be a beneficial control method. Something like the Ocarina/Majora's Mask way of doing things where it's only for specific moments is all you need.



Baker1000 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

@ericwithcheese2 I don't know about that...the first wave was fairly easy to get hold of. I only ordered a few and left my decision until a month before release, and they arrived on time with no issues. After that, everyone seemed to go mad for them and you couldn't wait more than a day after pre-orders went up to place one, or risk missing out.



Baker1000 commented on Feature: Five Key Moments from Nintendo's E3:

If they had put all of the DLC announcements (in a short presentation) within the Digital Event, it would have been better received. At least initially. You have to give them credit for choosing not to inflate an otherwise low-key presentation with Smash Bros content and announce it all before E3 began. It should also be noted they announced Earthbound Beginnings completely out of the blue before the NWC when they could have held it back for the Digital Event.

I have to say though a lot of the new spin-offs they announced (Metroid, Zelda, AC) feel like the sort of thing they could put on mobile rather than 3DS. I hope they're rather deeper than that though. Overall, although the main bulk of the event was underwhelming, it was still a good (not amazing) E3 for Nintendo. I saw enough to be excited about, if not totally blown away by.



Baker1000 commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker Stole the Sho...:

I wasn't so bothered about Mario Maker until I saw it in action last night. The levels were insane and ridiculously fun to watch people try and figure out. Am I right in thinking there's no online sharing? If that is the case it's a huge mistake. Nintendo could make last nights levels available for download so we can all have a go, plus give us plenty more of the same every week.



Baker1000 commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Slashing Its Way to 3DS:

I guess the gameplay is quite suited to handheld play but I'd rather an all new game, or at least new maps and story challenges. I'll bet Tetra and King of Red Lions become DLC on the Wii U version.



Baker1000 commented on Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Is Dashing To The Ninte...:

Yeah I'm not buying it. I gave up on the handheld games after Lost World, I'd rather just buy the console equivalent. But anything in the Boom series, handheld or home console, I'm not touching unless it gets amazing reviews. And I mean at least 9 or 10s from multiple sites.



Baker1000 commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

They're cool as a collectible. It's great that certain characters who aren't so mainstream like Mario and Link have been given figures. I think there could be more interesting ways to make use of them with games though. Unlocking costumes is cool but I'd like to see more writable uses like Smash. As for stock? I've not had major trouble getting hold of the ones I want. If I was going for the whole collection I might struggle with each wave but picking and choosing has meant I've gotten all my faves so far on launch.



Baker1000 commented on The Days Are Numbered For The Nintendo Video 3...:

Wasted opportunity. Never put any trailers on there, started to repeat the content after a while. I know you can get trailers on the eShop but it's always been quite unreliable for me, trying to stream videos from the eShop.



Baker1000 commented on Weirdness: Lorry Thieves Make Off With Splatoo...:

Wow, I almost feel bad for the crims. I bet they expected a truck load of Playstations and Xbox Ones, instead they're stuck with a lorry load of kids toys!! Joking aside, this is horrible news for anyone waiting for their pre-order. I would flip it if was one of mine, and a special edition at that + an amiibo? Bad times.

"Pre-ordering any Nintendo limited edition is a stumble in the dark, as we blindly hope an order isn't cancelled just before it's due to be shipped" <-----I've never had any kind of problem with a Nintendo limited edition. I've always been able to order with no problem, stock has never been an issue so you don't have to rush to place your order and hope. I've never heard of any issues of such kind until the Great amiibo Grab of 2015, so I don't know where you got that idea.
